Well, I finally got round to writing an entry for this - and suprised to see only two stories in the competition so far!

I'll redraft it and get it posted - the topic title was a godsend.

Has been Captain Taboo, Commander deMarc (maybe one more) along with the winner from the last contest.

Anyone who can pinpoint it, please do. :blink1::)

My sources in Starfleet Intel have it on good authority that Rocar, Aitmen and DeMarc have been tapped... and is it really necessary to call Captain Taboo a has been? Surely a Captain deserves more respect...Tsk Tsk Tsk... ;)

:P

Aww, Llewelyn, and I thought you could understand proper English, but I'm sure Captain Taboo knows I was not calling him a "has been" and I see no reason to retract the sentence. *lol*

It's the Southern influence that pegs (or plagues) me, is it? Using it as I speak, I tend to leave off the subject, but it is implied, making it proper south of the Mason-Dixon line, is it?

So the translation would be, "They have been..." (meaning Judges) or "It has been....( meaning Judge's Panel)" is it?

However, the question still remains, "is it?" It is! :blink1:

Is that the Welshness? They often end statements with "isn't it?" even if it's not a question.

"I'm from the valleys, isn't it?"

anyway - prod, judges, prod...

Yeah, I think Welshness, is it? Strange coming for a self-professed Southern boy from the West coast of the USA, isn't it? :blink1:

Helps to "prod, judges, prod..." *lol*

Is it and isn't it are used almost indistinguishibly, much the same way that Americans end statements with a question, such as "you know what I'm saying?" or "You feel me"? or "you know?" or the brits like to say "yes?" or "eh wot?", (by Brits I mean the English, because no-one outside of the English ever claims to be a Brit, and the English like to play down the resurgence of Celtic nationalism within Britain by saying, we're all brits... whereas the peoples of the former Brythonic Celtic nation of Kernow, locked within the confines of England, is it? they say, I'm from Cornwall, or from Scotand I'm a Scot, or from Cymru, I'm Welsh or more properly Cymraeg. The one exception might be the "Northern Irish" which are really misguided transplanted Scottish presbyterians given lands in exchange for occupying and subjegating the republican minded revloutionaries of the late 1700's through today, consider themselves Brits, loyal subjects to the Crown of England, which would probably cause William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, not to mention Bonnie Prince Charlie to roll over in their graves...Ed. note...) or the Canuks like to say, "Eh?", or the Spanish like to say, "Entiendes?" and L is a nod to my heritage, which came to this country from Ireland and Wales, but being that my grandfather was from the Welsh side, isn't it? I ended up with the name Williams rather than MacMurrough, which is the Irish on my grandmother's side. Of course many Irish and Welsh settled in the south, though our family split on the Irish side right before the Civil War, with half going to the Dakota's and half left to face Sherman, who's statue I booed loudly while touring the nation's captial last year I am proud to say. I live in California yes, but believe me I hate almost everything about it politically and economically. We have the highest prices in the nation, aside from the state of my birth which is Hawaii, and the highest taxes, and yet we are broke. We have a republicrat governor, who even if he channeled the Terminator and Conan was no match for the lobby groups which run this state like Tamany hall, (at least we Irish were good at more than growing potatoes...). So Llewelyn represents my dream of rejecting homogenaity and he is the descendant of people who left the political correctness and mish mash melding of the Federation to preserve Celtic heritage and culture. That is why I include very distinct speech patterns for him, as noted in such phrases as There is good, by my way of thinking though none to loudly, is it? Now imagine that line being read by john Rhys davies, and you pretty much have nailed Llewelyn's timbre...

And while some may say, HEY this isn't a place to put treatises on obscure triva and linguistical derivations, I concur with the previous two persons and say, hey, we don't have anything ELSE to read because we are still waiting for the reviews. I think we should fillibuster and just post random silliness until they are sufficiently prodded, *poke poke*

:)

A filibuster you say? i accept!

As an Englishman I feel I need to refute some of your previous statements. I consider myself British, to be part of the British Empire - and we spent so long subjucating the Scottish, Welsh and Irish (well, some of them anyway) that they can chuffing well call themselves British, too.

Sure we gave them devolution but that was just to make them feel better :)

Although truth be told we are still united, just look at the Prime Minister - he may be experiencing some slight technical difficulties but he is the British PM from Scotland. As for Cornwall - they're still part of England and I doubt that's going to change at any point. If they wouldn't give the Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire independence, I can't see them doing anything for Cornwall!

Prod, prod, proditty-prod...

:blink1: A Sais who claims to be British, whodathunk it? lol. And that's okay, you don't really think that the Scots gave the Crown the ACTUAL Stone of Scone do you? But as long as we can laugh and smile while we discuss these things, there's no need to throw rocks...lol :sweating:

Cymru am byth! Alba go Bragh! Erin Go Bragh! and the rest of them can just yell their own slogans because I don't know them.... :rolleyes7:

What's this here? Don'tcha know? Filibuster, is it? No, it is Filibuster, isn't it? And it seems to me we do not wish to deliberately obstruct judging by delaying it. I think the desired effect would be to prevent procrastination or dilly-dallying. So is it to our advantage to filibuster? Whatcha say?

:blink1: Nay.
